Reflection measurement in FDTD Simulation

      Hi All,

      Want to know if the reflectance measured in a FDTD simulation at off-normal angle of incidence is specular or diffuse type? Or both? Thank you.

      FDTD directly solves Maxwell's equations, so it will include both specular and diffuse reflection. An exception would be when you're using a TFSF source with a scattering object on a substrate, in which case the specular reflection from the substrate would be removed.
